Experience the Past. Visit. Partake. Celebrate. Stay.
The nine-acre estate, including both grand homes, was used by the Musser family until the late 1980s. Since 2007, the estate operates as an event center run by the non-profit group, Friends of Linden Hill.
Individuals, families, and groups can visit the Weyerhaeuser Home with the Linden Hill Historic House Museum and Musser Mansion (when available), and learn about what it was like living in the early 1900s via guided tours. Learn More.
Along with guided tours, area residents and visitors are welcome to partake in a number of events held at the estate throughout the year. Recognized as a beacon for philanthropy and the arts, Linden Hill is frequently used as a venue for fundraisers, school educational outings, wine tastings, family picnics, tea retreats, cooking classes, brunches, music concerts, and more. Perhaps the most recognized event is our annual Christmas at the Mansions, where visitors are able to take tours of both homes fully decorated in magical holiday splendor for ten days. Learn more about our upcoming events.
Not just a venue for public events, the majestic estate is also a premier destination for weddings –– both indoor and outdoor events –– as well as group retreats. Learn More.
For those really looking to experience the past, Linden Hill offers lodging at the Musser Mansion. Each of its heirloom-filled rooms come complete with awe-inspiring views - including the Mississippi River, private grounds filled with gardens, charming buildings, and historic spaces. Wedding parties, retreat groups, tourists, and local residents can spend a night, a weekend, or an entire week eating, sleeping, and simply enjoying the time ‘living in history’ at the beautiful Musser mansion.

The Group Behind the Scenes... The Friends of Linden Hill
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." –– Margaret Mead
Linden Hill is owned by the City of Little Falls and governed by a group of dedicated volunteers. This group is known as The Friends of Linden Hill, Inc. The non-profit group was created in 2007 to preserve and protect the living and structural history, as well as the spirit of the Musser and Weyerhaeuser homes. They work to showcase the houses and their history now and for the future.
Funds raised by the group are used to help educate our community, guests and visitors, as well as preserve, and restore these historic homes and their heritage for the enjoyment of current and future generations. The Friends of Linden Hill cultivate funds via memberships, contributions, fundraising events, and rental of the grounds and homes for group events.
In the end, your patronage to Linden Hill is support for the group and a big part of what helps preserve the estate. You can also help by purchasing a Friends of Linden Hill Membership.
